Yes but if you look at those all of those are against &pdev->dev
which is the extcon device.
The gpiod interface expects the device passed to both contain
the of_node and be used for the devm operations. But we need to
use the extcon device for the devm operations, but the of_node is
contained on the MFD device.
So if I do:
Then the gpiod won't be released when the extcon device is
removed. But if I do:
Then it won't be able to find the DT entries.
